When you don't have enough storage in your bathroom, it will feel cramped and less functional than it should, even if you are remodeling it to be larger. Having enough bathroom storage means you can neatly stash all of your toiletries, personal care items, cleaning supplies, towels, and toilet paper, without resorting to cluttered cabinets or counter tops. Your bathroom will feel more organized and spacious, and you will enjoy spending time there. Here are four ways to add storage to your bathroom when you remodel:
Opt for a Vanity Cabinet
Instead of a pedestal sink or smaller under-sink area, choose a beautiful vanity cabinet. These large cabinets accommodate your sink, a counter, and mirror on top while providing plenty of cabinets and drawer space for extra storage. Vanity cabinets are often larger, more dramatic pieces of furniture that can make a real design statement, and come in a variety of finishes, paint colors, and stains, to complement your bathroom remodel perfectly. Having a vanity cabinet custom made will ensure your vanity blends seamlessly with your overall bathroom design.
Add Floating Shelves
Floating shelves are great because they add a bit of extra storage without being bulky or taking up too much space. Floating shelves can be a great place to showcase decorative items like framed photos or even a vase of flowers, while also holding makeup, decorative jars for your Q-tips and cotton balls, and other small odds and ends you're not sure what to do with.
Add an Armoire
A wooden armoire that matches or complements your vanity cabinet will give you a ton of extra storage while also making your bathroom look more elegant. An armoire is the perfect place to store bulkier items like your extra sets of towels and washcloths, buckets, and other cleaning supplies, and even hanging items like bathrobes as long as you add a rod or hooks.
Don't Forget the Space Over Your Toilet
The space above your toilet is often overlooked but a very practical location for a smaller cabinet or a shelf or two. If you choose open shelving, you can add decorative baskets which neatly hide extra rolls of toilet paper, your hairdryer, and other items you need frequent access to but don't necessarily want on display.
By incorporating these storage ideas into your bathroom remodeling project, you will make your bathroom much more functional and easier to navigate.
